College education continues to be a dream for several students with disabilities. This session will highlight the life experiences of students with Cerebral Palsy who successfully completed college. All the participants in this study shared that college was not recommended by their guidance counselors during their transition from high school. The daily life experiences of these students will highlight challenges and opportunities they faced during their time in high school and college. All the attendees will have an opportunity to openly discuss the case studies and relate to the experiences of the participants in the study. Several tips will be discussed to help future students with disabilities smoothly transition from high school and consider college as a future option.
